What is an acceptable time to start drinking (alcohol) on any given day?

I've started at breakfast once or twice. Acceptable? I'd say depends on the situation but I think noon would be the standard.

As a great man once sung: "Weeellllll, I woke up this morning and got myself a beer......."

The best answer I have received so far is "What time do you wake up?"

My wife has not accepted that as an acceptable answer though.

Im looking specifically for a time.

In general, my rule is once 12:00 noon strikes I am allowed to drink until I go to bed. She thinks I need to wait until 4:00 pm. Which, IMO, is far too late. Normally I dont start until later, but if Im restricted to 4:00 pm every single day, that ruins a great many days of football.

I was serious with 10 AM....afterall, if that's the time the bars open up, then it must be the acceptable starting time to indulge if you wish to do so.

That's how I see it anyways

It's all about your choice of alcohol as it pertains to social acceptance.

10:00am - 2:00pm - Hair of the Dog/Brunch (Bloody Marys or Mimosas)
2:00pm - 6:00pm - Afternoon Delight/Lunch (Beer)
6:00 -7:00 - Happy Hour (Mixed Cocktails)
7:00-9:00 - Dinner (Wine or Beer depending on the meal)
9:00 - Sleep - Night Cap (Any kind of whiskey straight.)

These are steadfats social norms and cannot be argued against.

In general, whenever one feels like sipping an adult beverage, they should feel free to do so regardless of what the clock says (presuming that circumstances at that given time do not make the decision inappropriate... for example, drinking a beer immediately before attending church might not be a wise choice).

Depends on the day.

On the weekends, pretty much whenever you feel like it...unless you have things to do...which would knock it back into the afternoon.

Week days, when you get off work, I suppose.

1 hour prior to kick-off. (9am for me on Sundays)

15 minutes prior to teeing off.

The minute someone else in your group starts if in a social situation. (Brunch, BBQ, etc)

Other than that.....lunchtime/noon-ish.

Hell yea... English comp is an easy A...

When I took it at the University of North Florida (I've switched around schools a bit), we had 1-page papers due every day, with two 8-10 page research papers, and one 3-page in-class final.

I wrote every on of those essays 30 minutes before class and showed up drunk, the lowest grade I got in that class was a 92.

I'm a junior, and I got out drinking just about every night, and I have a 3.78.

Night and Day is totally dependant on what are you doing and your sleeping schedule, right?

That said, it sounds like you have a drinking problem if you're trying to defend a certain time. I would think that the wife doesn't look twice at a drink at anytime until you drink too much. Say you up playing poker most of the early morning hours and you decide to finish off with a night cap at 4 or 5 am...she's probably good with that unless you've had way too much already and/or you're driving soon.

If you're a drunk, listen to your wife and back off. If you're totally under control and not prone to stupid, tell the wife to back off. "Get back in the kitchen and make me a sandwich!"








Good luck with that...

As long as it's occasional, it doesn't matter what time you start drinking.

If it's habitual and causing issues in your life, any time is the wrong time and you should seek to fix your problem.

That is the only right answer.

On the weekends, I'd think noonish should be ok, if you really drink in moderation. However, on the week days, I'd keep it after 5:00pm and then only drink like one or two beers. Your a family man, a husband and father, IMHO, you need to take all that into account.

Bro, if you have to ask...

When you are out with the boys; fishing, camping, hunting, etc, there is no time. Popping a beer at 5 AM when you get up is just fine. I have done this more than once.

However, a 5 AM beer on a daily basis leads to living under a freeway overpass with a cardboard box sign.

The earliest I start on weekends is after lunch. If I dont get lunch in, its downhill FAST.

For weekdays, after dinner. Again, if I dont get dinner in, its downhill fast and I am useless the next day.

I think your wife oughta be happy with this. Good luck.

The best answer I have received so far is "What time do you wake up?"

My wife has not accepted that as an acceptable answer though.

Im looking specifically for a time.

In general, my rule is once 12:00 noon strikes I am allowed to drink until I go to bed. She thinks I need to wait until 4:00 pm. Which, IMO, is far too late. Normally I dont start until later, but if Im restricted to 4:00 pm every single day, that ruins a great many days of football.

If you are working from home I would only start drinking at noon if I had a lunch meeting with clients.

Even then I would wait until after 4 or 5pm to get the beer bong out.

I'm a light-weight. Booze in the day would just make me tired.

A couple-a-pops at night now and again does me fine. A good vodka, even better.

Daytime drinking? Maybe at a game or something, but rarely. Too much **** to get done. Couldn't really see working and taking care of my kids while I'm guzzling liquor.

I'll go out on a limb and say that any pre-dark drinking on any sort of regular basis PROBABLY isn't a good sign. Doesn't mean anyone who does has issues, but probably not a good sign, imo.

Let me address those that assume I have a drinking problem.

I do not. I know how to drink and I rarely spill it so my drinking isn't a problem.

IN all seriousness, I dont drink that much. I seldom get drunk, though I have been known to toss a few too many back when the the Broncos or Jayhawks are playing, but even then its a seldom occuring thing.

I asked because today, I felt like a beer at around 2:30ish. During the week thats about 5 hours earlier than I normally go for a beer, but it was snowing all day, I was bored, and I had a hankering for a beer. Wife didn't get on to me, but she did say "Geez its not even 3 yet" which then prompted this whole question.

what's funny is how far we've all swung on the pendulum. Back in the 50's people drank all the time, during work, before work and after. In the 80's a bunch of over reactive lesbians started MAAD and now everyone gets weird if you have a drink because one drink today means you have a problem.

People are way too sensitive.

I typically have one or two beers a night. One before dinner (which I'll often skip). One before bed (which I almost never skip). Occassionally, I'll bump it up to three. On a very special occassion (birthday, holiday, life victory), I'll bump that up to four or five.

The only drinking problem that I have is when the fridge is running low. But that's not much of a problem anymore since I got hooked up with a Widmer connection who gets me $12 cases of the finest beer in America. That's fifty cents a bottle to drink a kingly beer. Fricken awesome.

When I was in Korea, I went to the mud festival and started drinking at 10 am. Obviously, if you work late, you would not start drinking until you get off. If you are just sitting around your house, I suppose noon is the most acceptable.

Breakfast beer. Now in some places, like Germany, breakfast beer is the norm. A great breakfast beer is Major Toms from the Fort Collins Brewery. If you haven't had one of those at 9am then you haven't lived a full life.

Rock Chalk, if you're still taking advice, push for the european rule - a beverage is acceptable at any time so long as that beverage fits the occassion. Also, being obviously drunk is frowned upon in most european countries, unless its a special occassion. Broncos games are always special occassions.

Not that's it's any of my business....but then again you've made it everyone's business by posting this on a message board.:rofl:

Please don't take this as me being judgemental, or thinking i'm "better" than anyone else...my concern is not being used as a weapon here....

But i'm sensing there is some tension between you and your spouse on this issue. I think you need to ask yourself what's more important to you...drinking beer, or your wife and having a happy marriage.

I have found in my talks with older people who have been married for decades that they all generally agree on two rules when it comes to marriage.

#1 - Nothing comes before your spouse....not your relatives, kids, job, friends, and favorite team or beverage.

#2 - Unless you both agree on it, never make a major purchase or decision without them agreeing.

Your wife doesn't seem to have a problem with you having a cold brewski and enjoying the Broncos kick ass...she does however have a problem with the time you start and that generally means the amount you consume during the day.

So why not try this for a change....submit for her approval (remember you both need to be on the same page or else you'll be right back to where you are now) that you limit your intake to the time the Broncos are playing...pre-game show thru post game show..and that's it.

If they play an east coast 1pm game, you'll get to start at 10am when the pre-game show begins. And if they play a 2pm game, you'll get to start at 1pm when the pre-game show begins. Keep in mind you will not be allowed to drink AFTER the postgame show ends.... That gives you approximately 5 hours of drinking beer and watching football

This should solve several things at once....

[] it shows that you heard her concerns. Keep in mind that she might be worried about possible health issues later in life vs she's just b****ing at you.

[] it shows you are willing to resolve the issue in a non-argumentative way that is "fair".

[] it shows that you are willing to moderate your alcohol consumption which will save you money long term as well as reduce your risk of liver damage, and possible marital strife.

[] a husband that puts his wife above everything else will surely see her reciprocate

I think you'll find that your wife is more important than some beer and the Broncos...because neither of the two will love you back, or take care of you when you're in a wheel chair

I always take a shot of Jack Daniels (sometimes two) after whitewater rafting or mountain hikes, and maybe a beer or three during game events at the homes of others, but never, ever in front of the kids. Ever. I don't keep any liquor in the house at all (I keep the whiskey in my office safe). I suppose that's a little too puritan for a lot of people, but I think kids see adults drinking as a sign of approval.
